I use to work with Microsoft Access but now I have to export the information to an Informix database, using Borland C++. I use ODBC to connect with the Access database and I want to use ODBC too to connect with the Informix database. The problem is that I don't know how to do it. I have downloaded the IBM Informix Client-SDK 2.81, the IBM Informix Connect 2.81 and I'm working with Windows XP.
Another problem is that I saw in the ODBC connection that I have to specify a server name, a host name..., buth I don't have any server to connect and the database has to be in the computer.
Can anyone explain me how to create an Informix database or how to connect with ODBC if the database is located in the computer?
